"I made these for a buffet set-up, everyone loved them! Don't omit the green onion, it really made the flavors come together. It was sweet yet savory. They are easy to make and should be made ahead then sliced. I would make these again."

"Absolutely delicious and really visually appealing. My family of carnivores required the addition of turkey (we used deli slices) which was stellar, but I'd bet chicken, ham or turkey would all be awesome."

"This is a huge hit whenever I make it and I get many requests for the recipe so now I always have some copies of the recipe with me when I take it to potlucks. I have substitued cottage cheese for feta on a couple of occasions and everyone still gobbles them up. I probably double the green onions - I like the flavour as well as the extra colour. This is in with the favourites!!!"

"I love this recipe. In the fall, I make it with sundried tomato tortillas and use diced up dried apricots in place of the cranberry--gives it a nice, harvesty color scheme!"

"The feta cheese added a great flavour, I suggest using less instead of leaving it out completely. By the way, I also added a little more onions, it made a difference."

"I brought a plate of these appetizers to a holiday pot luck at my office a couple of years ago. Everyone liked them, but one co-worker in particular was crazy about them. He and I agreed that the cheese/green onion/dried cranberry mixture would be equally good as a spread for crackers."
